    About This Project

    Wild animal microbiomes have received minimal research and we often don’t know what constitutes a "healthy" microbiome for these species. Such knowledge is especially important for the conservation of vultures, which rely on their specialized guts to neutralize toxins. My goal is to identify the microbial partners (aka microbiome) of California Condors at the chick and adult stage and identify external factors that influence microbiome composition and diversity across individuals.
